Ahhhhh….summer. As I lay here, minutes ticking away towards 9am, kids still snoozing away in silence, I realize how much we have really settled in to our summer groove. At the end of May, when everyone is coming down from that tornado of end-of-year-madness, we begin gearing up for summer. What trips are y’all taking? … More Nothing and Everything
It was a rough start to the trip this morning. As we took off through a barricade of storms in Atlanta, the plane once again bobbed and weaved through the turbulence, sending me once again to the edge. Zero visibility blinded my view and brought on panic. Meanwhile, my brave daughter next to me could … More Just Say Yes
Ahhh, the adventures of summertime travel. We have been hoping around a ton, making precious memories along the way.

What I did realize, however, is that despite my loss, the benefit from the process still remained. … More What if You Fly?
We say it every time we travel. We can totally make this dish at home! We can decorate our backyard like this! We need to remember to carve out time like this for each other at home! And then we go home. We fall back into the same routine, get hit with the same everyday … More These Dreams (and Realities)
I did it. I wrote the most soulful, harrowing, genuine, clarity-filled post I had ever written. And then I lost it.
